Scars

Thank you for posting your question. There are many options for treating dark spots. Hydroquinone bleaching cream can help lightening them. IPL intensive pulse light treatments can also help lightening scars and making them less noticeable. As of now, I recommend putting on sunscreen and avoiding sunlight exposure to reduce further hyperpigmentation. Best of luck.

Best remedy for brown spots--peels, lasers, microneedling/prp

This can be improved with a combination of peels, lasers, microneedling/prp and skin care for skin brightening. I recommend a formal consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist. Best, Dr. Emer.
